Chapter5.Dancing Type


Chapter 5. Dancing Type

One fun and powerful text property in After Effects is Source Text, which lets you animate individual characters within a word. You can change a single letter to another character in tandem with any or all of its other properties. For example, you can change the letter A to the letter W and then to E (or set it to random characters) over time.

This chapter shows you how to use the Source Text property to create a dancing figure, with some help from a unique font. In addition, you'll learn how to create a rich ethereal motion background, simply by masking and animating some solids (and blending them, and applying effects to them…OK, it isn't that simple!).
